    Yes, I must admit that occasionally I go by this place that other cars sit, pump in this foul smelling stuff, and hope to not spill on myself. No, I'm not talking about a bar [​IMG] Here's my fuel fill up data since PP ownership. My PP is primary vehicle for two adults. Spouse has less than 10 mile one way daily commute. I walk to work. PS - purchased my 2017 PP Advanced in Feb 2019 w/5K miles from Napa, CA Toyota dealer (500 mile RT from my residence) $27K + $3K ish taxes, etc. At that time new PPs were slim pickings w/small Toyota rebates.

    I once had an 81 240D MB. That diesel was nasty.

    Me too! No idea what I was thinking (n)

    I’ve had to burn four gallons since March, just so it wouldn’t go stale, and that burns me:mad:

    that's one of the nice things about prime, you don't have to worry about the fuel going stale like the pip, and the engine doesn't run evey 124 miles

    Behind the pics is a cover for the patio which has lighting and fans:).

    We've been doing things as we go;).

    Got the perfect place for a nice flat screen scoped out. Now need to convince the wife it's a good idea:love:.

    If that happens, no need to go anywhere else as all bases would be covered(y).

    A very selective list as capacity was very limited:cool:.

    There are fires, but air quality was good today:).

    I'll take the bad air quality versus your impending weather:eek:.

    Get that snow blower ready (y).
